Yesterday we ran into a bug in the Visual Studio 2005 IDE. To be precise: in Intellisense when writing a web.sitemap file. The Intellisense tells you the attribute which indicates whether a site map provider filters site map nodes based on a user’s role is called securityTrimmingEnabled. But when you use this attribute and run the website, you receive an error stating there is an Unrecognized attribute ‘securityTrimmingEnabled’.

When you look the attribute up in the help, it is called SecurityTrimmingEnabled. Notice it starts with a capital S in stead of a small one. Changing the attribute’s name seems to have fixed the problem, so it’s no biggy. But it is still a bug. As long as this is the biggest one in there, I’m happy ;).
